Site of the Week: Materialicious

After a looong delay in posting due to other affairs, we bring in the new year here at Intentionally Left Ugly with a site that displays what I believe to be the most honest expression of progress and functionality. This is a site that can please the eyes of all beholders.


Shelter, Materials & Objects

Following the words of William Morris,

If you want a golden rule that will fit everybody, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.

The sentiment is also remarkably similar to my programming philoshopy which ingratiated this site so much to me.


Site of the Week: Concept ships

From the retro-futuristic to the truly beyond-this-world artistry exploring design concepts for spaceships and other craft. This is an amazing collection of beautiful creations by extremely talented artists.

The site is rather packed with a lot of multimedia so it may take a while to load even on broadband. But it’s well worth the wait.

In addition to science fiction works by authors such as Arthur C. Clarke, it’s visionary imagery such as these that inspired my thirst for space.
