Signed Waves

Some experiments on the theme of waves I did last year.

The idea with the first two images was to have the tubes in the background be displaced and twisted by the foreground object creating this wavy lines effect:

Below, an attempt to create fake ocean waves with by creating a sine wave from the distance of the Signed Distance Function of the objects. The second image shows the concentric rings of the distance from the nearest object used to create the waves:
