Shōka is an exhibition in three parts, a concept derived in part from the shōka style of ikebana, the traditional Japanese art of floral composition. The shōka style, cultivated in the Ikenobō school in the 15th century, is a minimal description of the universe in three parts: the earth (地), the heavens (天), and humanity (人).
