Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith, R) and Nikolai Azarov (guest star Jeremy Davidson, L) discuss the future of the Falcone family in the "Penguin's Umbrella" episode of "Gotham."

Journalist/documentarian Phelim MacLeer talks about his controversial play "Ferguson," a work of verbatim theater in that it's comprised entirely of excerpts from grand jury testimony in the Michael Brown case; Costume designer Lisa Padovani on mashing up influences for her work on "Gotham"; French artist Vincent Lamouroux's piece "Projection" covers an abandoned Silver Lake motel and it's surrounding palm trees with lime wash.

"Gotham" provides a new take on Batman's origin story. Lisa Padovani is the show's costume designer and took the Frame through how she draws her inspirations.
Artist Vincent Lamouroux has transformed the dilapidated Sunset Pacific Motel by covering the entire structure — and adjacent palm trees — in a stark white lime wash.
