“….The complicated industrial forms refer to movement or production. Harbers’ fascination for production processes, the winning of raw materials and the working of materials are obvious, but nowhere a spilled chip can be found. And that seams exactly the artists’ intension.
His “machines” shine proudly, but never start moving. It is the industrial design that inspires and fascinates Harbers. You could imagine that it are exactly his own “machines” he needs to work the marble for his artworks. An idea in which he inextricably binds up nature, his machines and the visitor.”

Verily Klaassen, Eindhovens Dagblad
