TRIPOT is a Slow Art Collective based in Brussels, Belgium. They create sensorial audio-visual art as part of their research-driven practice. Their artworks stimulate and at the same time investigate the embodied experience of looking. Through the appropriation and deconstruction of imagery the artists break dominant patterns of social discourse into multiple perspectives.

The collective was founded in 2012 by Aïlien Reyns and Marius Packbier. In 2016 TRIPOT grew out to be an artist-run production platform and has since then produced various international art and research projects.
