The Un-Sento

The Un-Sento reduces clutter by de-atomizing (less dangerous than full matter compression) any array of household trinkets constipated by the sodden weight of full-on emotional attachment or sentimentalisation. The reduction process still has a lot to be desired. The 'Composite Of Sentimentality' is currently not the most appropriate sum of parts in any aesthetic sense though the reductive process is a success. We are considering geometric archetypes that can readily be absorbed into a domestic unconsciousness. Nevertheless, as an obstacle to the smooth introduction of these archetypes, trials are beginning to uncover a worrying trend; trial groups have asked for duck shapes, frogs and forms of an equestrian nature. The latter suggests that a successful application of the Un-Sento would be incomplete without a parallel course of counseling.
