Full Disclosure: This reporter went to college with one of the artists in the "Weather Patterns" show, and we did a radio program together, sometimes.

Bushwick Open Studios is marking its eighth year this weekend. This year, it’s in Boerum Hill. Just kidding. It’s in Bushwick. That would be cool if they moved the whole thing to Boerum Hill, though. They could say they were subverting the notion of neighborhood identity or something.

Anywhoo… you should check out some art this weekend. Here’s a few picks with tech angle:

  • POWRPLNT presents Zerø 0ne, a new digital collaboration space inside The Stream Gallery. POWRPLNT will both serve as a lab for artists and a place to teach community members about digital artmaking tools, for two months starting Friday. Featuring works by various artists, the opening is Friday, May 29, at 6 PM, 1196 Myrtle Ave.
  • Discrete Systems,” a multimedia immersive exhibition by Giselle Zatonyl, at Transfer Gallery. We wrote about a previous opening at the same space. Opening Saturday, 6pm-11pm, 1030 Metropolitan Ave.
  • Studio 303 will show various artists throughout the weekend, including Carla Gannis‘s “Non-Facial Recognition Project,” where she takes submitted photos and modifies them so Facebook can’t recognize them but people might still be able to, and VHS works by Man Bartlett. Open throughout the weekend at 41 Varick #3, hours here.
  • Weather Patterns: the Smell of Red,” at Glasshouse, is a mechanically manipulated environment (meaning, machines will make the air move, release scents and create other weather effects indoors), by various artists. Opening reception, Sunday, June 1, 5pm – 9pm, at 246 Union Ave.
