The Average Of All Fonts

With so many fonts out there, have you ever wanted to use something that's just "normal?" Designer Mortiz Resl combined almost 1000 fonts on his computer and the average font is what he came up with.
This project shows what a font would look like if it consisted of all typefaces installed on my system. Every character from a to z is drawn using every single font with a low opacity. In total there are over 900 typefaces in my library. I didn’t exclude the ugly ones.

What do you think? It seems pretty average to me.

I wonder what'd happen if I tried that with my fonts. I have some pretty weird fonts, including one called "Food", where each letter is a picture of a different food item.

Makes me wonder - as a future computer engineer, so this may be a little too technical.

If one were to do this with an artificial neuron net, teaching it each letter in every typeface, would the prototype of each letter look like this?

As an Helvetica aficionado, i find it disheartening that the average font is serifed and close to Times !

Damn ! it's like the last 60 years of modern-itude didn't happen.
