Scenery Between-Windows 3 (窓-間의 풍경 3)

Queen Elizabeth II's portrait has appeared on the currencies of numerous countries more than that of any other individual. The faces of great individuals have been carefully chosen and graced their currencies as a tradition and in the interest of enhancing international reputation and relations.
On the other hand, as they are becoming more attuned to the online sharing and exchange platforms, users provide, share and replicate their own portraits. Their engagements of much broader populations function as super extenders for the advancement of computing sectors based on large sums of data sets.
What is called 'latent space' gives great insight into the correlations and patterns between different groups. Overlapped with the portrait on the window of the banknote, one can see its vision as a trained result by a group of faces of banknotes and a group of faces of users.
Were users more empowered and greater? Or did they eventually become a capital itself?
