Balseca's Suspensión I (2019) is a work that draws attention to the correlation between environmental destruction and daily life in the Amazon jungle. Shot in the middle of the Amazon forest in Ecuador, the videos shows a cut of a tall balsa tree trunk from which containers of local fossil fuels are hung in suspension.
