Hitoshi Nomura (b. 1945)Hitoshi Nomura was born in 1945 in the Hyogo Prefecture, Japan. He graduated with a BFA from Kyoto City University of Fine Art, Department of Sculpture in 1967. Like his contemporaries Robert Smithson, Chris Burden, and Gordon Matta-Clark, Nomura is a sculptor who pioneered the use of photography to document the often ephemeral and process-oriented artworks of the late 1960s and early 1970s. With his earliest works, such as Tardiology (1968), Nomura began turning away from an emphasis on the object in itself in favor of investigations into the passage of time, the fundamentals of matter, and the rhythms of the universe. Persistence and repetition pursued over long periods of time are central characteristics of his process.

As early as 1969, Nomura began making film and sound pieces using materials like oxygen and dry ice that are more commonly associated with science than with art. In series such as Moonscore and The Earth Rotation, Nomura used cameras, sophisticated telescopes and computers to reveal sinuous lines that recorded the passage of time and the motion of stars and planets. In 1980, Nomura began making daylong exposures that tracked the sun through the sky; he observed the phenomenon of contrasting concave and convex lines over the course of a year. His Analemma series illustrates this phenomenon, representing a symbol of endless recycling and regeneration. As part of his interest in the sun, Nomura has collected asteroids for last two decades and has also built and raced solar cars since 1993.

Nomura's work has been the subject of numerous museum solo exhibitions, including The National Museum of Modern Art, Osaka; The Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Tokyo; Art Tower Mito, Ibaraki; the Toyota Municipal Museum of Art, Aichi; and most recently at The National Art Center, Tokyo. He is a professor at the Graduate School of Kyoto City University of Fine Arts.
