Unicode Class Vernacular was created by artist Nathan Jones with 20 school pupils as part of Curious Mind's Specialist Leaders in Cultural Education (SLiCE) fellowship programme between Liverpool Biennial and The Studio, Liverpool. For the project, children spent a number of days playing ‘games’ in an attempt to explore the way we use visual, spoken and written language to communicate our identity. A dedicated website serves as a record of this game, reflecting on the potential for a new connectivity between ‘vernacular’ and ‘class’, using ‘unicode’ as a device to return the complexity of the spoken language to the written word.
