Scenery Between-Windows 3 


Queen Elizabeth II is featured on more banknotes in more countries than any other individual. The pervasiveness of a country's representative figure implicitly projects economic hegemony in international relations that has been formulated from the last centuries. The digital economical hegemony still under the lasting influence of legacy from the past is shaped by streamlined sharing of data. Internet users themselves multiply copies of their facial images and become influencers who play a pivotal role in encouraging decentralized economical geography in the network.

The 20-pound note made of polymer has a transparent window printed with Queen Elizabeth. Through the window, the audience gets a sneak peek at the generative image behind the portrait of her in a straight line. The machine trained the similarity between a dataset of the faces from a total of 317 banknotes and the other of the faces of randomly selected Internet users. It exposes the fact that the function of the face has been transformed from representative of national brand and indicator of dominant relations between countries into being data capital as such.
