Natural Progress is a poem by English Renaissance poet Ben Jonson (1572-1637), in a new setting by PS Vancouver’s Kate Noble. The original work is paired with archival photographs of department stores, grocery stores and other retailers around Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. By appearing in conjunction with these photographs, Jonson’s poem is interpreted as thoughtful commentary on commodity fetishism.
