Combinatorics Pattern

In my pattern research I found a piece by Emilia Bohdziewicz called 256 Possible Combinations of the Sign Containing Eight Elements from 1987. Being obsessed by visualizations of mathematical descrpitions of reality, I was immediately mesmerized by this piece. I could feel the mathematical order from it, and that order, known to me from my mathematical structure classes, has an incredibly calming effect on me. 

I spend a day decoding the piece. I figured out the structure. Then, using my own symbols, I created 32 Possible Combinations of the Sign Containing Four Elements and 64 Possible Combinations of the Sign Containing Six Elements and repeat patterns created by their juxtaposition.
