Tsila Hassine is a net artist, media designer and web programmer from Israel. Hassine currently teaches various interactive media and programming seminars at Shenkar College, Tel Aviv. She studied at the department of new media at Hochschule fur Gestaltung und Kunst, Zurich, and later at the Piet Zwart Post Graduate Institute, Rotterdam, where she received an M.A. in New Media Design.
