Can I create a document in Illustrator without attaching to the notion of paper with finite size?

Can you DELETE the ARTBOARD?

I reduced the artboard to some small size and remainder drawings persist. Can I delete the artboard at all?

You have to have some sort of an artboard.

Illustrator places artboards on a canvas space, which is sized at 16383 x 16383pt. You could create a new document with those dimensions.

Or, you can go to View > Hide Artboards (Shift+Ctrl+H) to just ignore whatever artboard you have defined.

Either way, be careful when exporting!
