Discourse of diving

Now that I am looking, the discourse of diving seems to be everywhere…

Nintendo’s Endless Ocean, for instance, takes us to the “pristine waters of fictional Manoa Lai Island”.

  • Diving signifies: discourses of tranquility, peace, undisturbed nature, health environment…
  • Internal contradiction: divers disturb the very undisturbed nature they want to attain…
  • Nevertheless: still very beautiful, highly enjoyable and thoroughly addictive!

Hot diving tip: Watercolours Dive Centre, Perhentian Islands, Malaysia.
