I went to see the exhibition, the artwork is really stunning in person. I assume most people don't know, but City Hall is the offices of the mayor of London, quite a coup for games in general to get that kind of recognition, let alone game accessibility, SE really pulled one out of the bag with that.
There's one piece that I'm certainly going to be bidding on :)
