Stefan Rummel's new work Articulated Chambers was shown inside the gallery room in the corner of USF Verftet. Rummel uses strings in his work, in this piece strings that do not produce sound, more specifically silicone strings. As a mixture of the chameleon's tongue and the spider's net, the silicone strings are attached to various vibrating elements in the gallery, including a large bass speaker. The installation is a further development of an installation in Maastricht in May 2011, where two large boxes were located on a pier by the river Maas, which flows through the city.
