Young Space Details @yngspc_deets is the new sibling Instagram account to @yngspc: process-driven and detail-oriented, it’s an up-close look (literally) at work that is typically only shown in overview form online. While never being able to replicate the experience of viewing or interacting with artwork in person, the aim is to introduce artwork digitally the way you might view it in person: from numerous angles and distances. With an emphasis on the process used to achieve the finished work, views of the studio and images of works in progress add up to a final piece.
Each feature on @yngspc_deets entails at least a couple of detail shots, and optionally a studio view, process shot (or video), and an overview, up to Instagram’s maximum of 10 images, with a minimum of 3 for each post. Some posts may be selected occasionally to share on the main @yngspc account, which does not accept submissions. (If you wish to submit your work to the project, please visit the Submit page.)
To submit your work for consideration for a post, DM up to 10 images of one artwork to @yngspc_deets. Remember to include:
- An overview image of one finished work
- At least two detail shots of the same work
- (Optional): a studio view/overview including the featured image, work-in-progress images of the specific artwork, and/or images + video illustrating the process you used to make the work
Featured pieces are selected based on the quality of the images, the originality of the work, and whether it “fits” with the general Young Space aesthetic, curated by Kate Mothes. Due to the number of submissions that Young Space receives each day, unfortunately not everything can be shared, and I may not get back to you immediately, but at the very least I will acknowledge that I’ve seen your message! Please do not email submissions, but if you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact Kate at [email protected].
