The Circle of HOPE (2018): "The Demoscene: How Software Piracy Birthed an Underground Art Scene" (Download)
Immediately after the Demoscene talk, Inverse Phase will commandeer the big screen for two hours of the most mind-bending demoscene productions ever created by hackers from around the globe. Take a trip through the evolution of demos (an underground art scene born out of software piracy) from the scene’s early beginnings in the mid 1980s, to the golden era of demos in the 1990s, and the modern era where we ended up! Expect a chill vibe with brief introductions of each demo as they play on the big screen. If you’ve never seen this stuff, you really owe it to yourself to check it out.
