Floating Worlds is Köller’s photographic investigation of the contemporary Japanese surfing subculture, compiled during a residency at the Australia Council’s Tokyo studio in 2003.
Köller’s photographs and videos document the emergence of surfing images on advertising billboards throughout the city as evidence of a shift in perception of surfing, from a transgressive subculture to a major thread in the contemporary Japanese imagination.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
The gallery is located diagonally opposite Melbourne Central Railway Station and can be reached by trams traveling on Swanston and La Trobe Streets, including the City Circle Tram.
Limited street parking is available.
