Neat "anti-aesthetic" exercise Peter!
Glad to find another Coomaraswamy reader these days!!!
For a different slant check out Christopher Alexander's book:
"Notes on the Synthesis of Form" and his notion of "goodness
of fit" I really liked that tho I should mention that much of the
book is on the technical and architectural side it's worth the
even if you skip stuff.
Some of Jan Mukarovsky's stuff is interesting to read alongside
Alexander and adds to the consideration of the importance of
context to aesthetic experience and understanding.
As you can see I teach k-5 <VBG>
