I think the English word is "obfuscation". There are competitions for code
writing in an obfuscated way. An example I found via Google is this piece
of code, formatted to look like a snowflake, which produces an animated
snow scene (I haven't tried downloading any of the entries).

There is one from a few years ago that I remember seeing online which
required you to write a "Hello World" program, and the entries for that
were amazing!
