17th Century Poison case disguised as a book

I cannot find the original source of this photo, which seems to have been passed around the web for 2 years or so. Any ideas?

The Medium is the Message by Thomas Wrightman.My major project theme is Addiction primarily looking at obsessive driven addictions. Looking at OCD where I want to create a voice for the sufferers and the emotions felt by them. The book firstly is closed hiding the addiction from view in the same manner as those who hide these addictions from loved ones and friends. However when the book is opened it reveals the chaotic emotions felt. Panic attacks are heavily associated with Obsessive Compulsive disorder and I wanted to convey this through the metaphor of a sinking ship in a vortex drowning from the obsession. Also the symptoms of a panic attack include loss of breath in the same way as drowning in water. However I wanted to add the anchor and typographic rope showing these problems can be solved and the ship can be saved in the same way as those who suffer from OCD when they receive proper treatment.

Jardin de la connaissance, the Garden of Knowledge, is an installation at the  Reford Gardens (Jardins de Métis), Quebec. The project, started in 2010, is made of books which are gradually decaying, turning culture back into nature. This is somewhat contraversial, because many people can’t stand to see books hurt.

I couldn’t figure out how to embed the panorama video, but it’s very cool.

A Giant Labyrinth Constructed from 250,000 Books, installation for the London Olympics. The pattern of the labyrinth is based on a fingerprint belonging to writer Jorge Luis Borges— because of The Library of Babel, I assume. 

The aMAZEme project was created by Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo.

I chose this picture of the interior because of the non-book element. I have no idea if the spider was added by a visitor or was integral to the project from the start.

The Spanish art collective Luz Interruptus built Literature versus traffic in Melbourne as part of Melbourne’s The Light in Winter Festival, June 2012. Unlike most art-book projects, in this one the books are intended for reading, too: passers-by were encouraged to take books home with them.
