Skein was commissioned to help realise the Glenn Barkley Room for the Magic Object Exhibition as part of the 2016 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art. The conceptual framework was to develop the artist's vision for a high-contrast exhibition space to display large scale ceramic Art Works.
Skein’s role was to act as conduit between the artist and Art Gallery of South Australia contractors to retain the integrity of the artist’s initial concept sketches, to selected suitable materials, and to nominate efficient and cost effective construction methods. Skein worked to resolve documentation, detailing, and material selections alongside the gallery's artisan carpenter and specialised contractors.
