Frigo uses A4 size and 55 mm thick cardboard boxes to archive his drawings of ideas after they are scanned (work 11), a selection of the trash he picks after it is scanned (work 08), the sketches of his walks after they are digitized (work 14), his fables booklets once they are completed and digitized (work 05), cut-outs of his paintings after they have been photographed (work 13), the paper notes of the songs he hears when he is driving and can't type on his phone (work 03) but also airplane and museum tickets, exhibitions flyers, books and all the material he had collected before the starting of his project. This material includes his "family treasure", his hairs, nails and teeth, and the journals he kept prior 2004.

Similar to other archival projects such as Andy Warhol's boxes, Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion Chronofile Frigo intends to stow the boxes in a cube construction to be left in nature as a sort of a deteriorating time capsule. Moreover, as a in ancient Celtic, Viking or Egyptian traditions Frigo intends to have his burnt body to be placed within one of these boxes to be placed inside the cube. While one face of the cube sits on the ground the other four perimeter faces are engraved with respectively the Input the Output, the time framework and the spatial framework of his project and the top shows the flower of life diagram as shown on the project website.
