Sirens of Chrome is one of Danish-American video artist Jesper Just's most compelling works.

Just’s work is ambiguous, full of life’s uncertainties, a technique that draws viewers into the story allowing insertion of individual memories and associations into his evocative visuals and forceful soundtracks. A group of African-American women in a black Chevy cruise through Detroit’s deserted streets to a plaintive piano soundtrack by acclaimed composer Angelo Badalamenti, who also scored David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. The work’s title refers to a vernacular term used to describe the women who added glamour to sales at American auto shows in the 1960s.
