Published LERAN VOKIN (THE SPIRIT OF THE MOUNTAIN), an Armenian language book comprising both Eastern- and Western-Armenian versions.
LERAN VOKIN is an unconventional autobiography, interwoven with Kardash's no-holds-barred writings on art, cross-cultural dialogue, and spirituality, and underscoring the concept of voki (spiritual) transferences.

The book also highlights Kardash’s signature TOOLS series -- sculptures which have evolved on an 11-acre parcel of land in Stanfordville over more than 30 years. These works comprise carvings in groups of four, with each component in a group bent to its stress point, whereby its energy flow is synergized with that of the other components.
