The Long Nose of Pinocchio

The Long Nose of Pinocchio by Nung-Hsin Hu / 皮諾丘的長鼻子:攝影與文字創作 by 胡農欣
In the brain, the section controls believing also dominates the sense of smell
在大腦裡,選擇相信真實與虛假的部位,同時也控制著嗅覺。
Taste turns out to be as abstract as religion
味道,原來和信仰一樣抽象。
This time, Pinocchio doesn’t lie. The nose which gets longer is because of the lie hidden in food.
這次皮諾丘沒有撒謊,變長的鼻子是因為食物裡的謊言。
In stewed tofu which is dipped in soy sauce,
在泡過鹵水的豆腐裡,
he smells the test paper with failing grade on which he disguised his parent’s signature
他聞到了小時候偽裝爸媽簽名的低分考卷
In crispy stuff fried in oil, he smells the betrayal behind lover’s over thoughtful behavior
在經過油炸的金黃酥脆裡
he smells the betrayal behind lover’s over thoughtful behavior
他聞到了情人過於關心後的背叛
In greasy flavor mixing with the sour of pickles,
在油味混合著的泡菜酸味裡,
he remembers the promises which was never fulfilled
他記得那些曾經許下卻來不及完成的諾言。
The delicious food hidden behind all the lies is the most real
藏在所有謊言後的美味,倍感真實

Smell disperses and becomes an element in memory.
氣味解體後,成為記憶裡的分子
The memory with all flavors makes up the so-called real flavor
五味雜陳的記憶,組成了所謂真實的味道
The sense of smell turns out to be interlocked with religion.
原來,嗅覺和信仰是相互牽絆的。
