Mathematics is useful in all stages of the creative process, and on many levels. By using mathematics as part of the process, abstract artwork can be infused with mathematics without necessarily representing any particular mathematical thing. Mathematical art can be conceptual, too. I use pencil, pen, pastel, paper, cardboard, scanner, camera, computer, printer, and metals to achieve my desired effects.

The outcome of a roll of the DA DA dice is a discrete random variable X with a singleton sample space (DADA). The probability of DADA is P(DADA)=1, so the expected value of X is E(X)=DADA.
