What do Latvian DJs, bronze replicas of vintage cameras, starfish and gaunt fashion models have in common? They have all been occupying the attention of former REM frontman Michael Stipe since the demise of his epoch-defining band... if his Tumblr is anything to go by.

Chief of his new interests is a passion for sculpture. "I do a lot of work that is replicas of existing objects and I very carefully choose what it is that I decide to replicate," says Stipe. "It's about festishising objects and nostalgia and sentimentality." Check out Stipe's Tumblr here.
