When Neagu first exhibited these small-scale sculptures he suspended them from the walls and ceiling of a darkened gallery. Visitors were encouraged to feel their way around the room, experiencing the works by touch.

Neagu considered sight to be an overused sense. In his Palpable Art Manifesto of 1969 he called for ‘one public, palpable art through which all the senses, sight, touch, smell, taste will supplement and devour each other so that a man can possess an object in every sense.’
