Artist Jordan Eagles Opens Up About His 'Blood Mirror' Project

by Anna Hiatt | Wednesday, November 11, 2015

Artist Justin Eagles' newest piece, "Blood Mirror," is now open at Trinity Church on Wall Street. The "mirror" is an installation containing nine slides stacked vertically within centimeters of each other. Each one, like a giant slide you'd place under a giant microscope, holds the blood of one of the nine gay, bisexual, and transgender men who donated for the project. The objective, Eagles says, was to protest the FDA's lifetime ban on "gay blood."
